Tacitus Starforge (Adam)
Level 7 Wizard - Elf
Tacitus hails from Iadara in the Kingdom of Kyonin.
He is a member of the Pathfinders, however, and has been residing in the Grand Lodge of Absalom for the past 15 years.
Absalom’s Grand Lodge draws
Pathfinder agents from all
corners of the Inner Sea and
beyond. Adventurous souls flock
to the Society’s vast complex of
towers, libraries, reliquaries, and
museums to train, research, and trade stories of life in the
field. Consequently, Pathfinders from all walks of life hold
the Grand Lodge of Absalom in high esteem and consider
it home. Within its walls, a cadre of masked leaders—the
Decemvirate—guides the Society’s global activities from
within its aerie, Skyreach. Other Pathfinders may give
their allegiance to foreign nations or religious factions,
but members of the Grand Lodge faction give their loyalty
to the Ten and the Pathfinder Society itself.
Venture-Captain Ambrus Valsin, who controls all of
the goings-on within the Grand Lodge itself, is disliked
by many new Pathfinders, but appreciated by veterans for
his skillful assignment of agents. Detail-oriented and
annoyed by inefficiency, he doesn’t appreciate back-talk
and reserves the most difficult assignments for those who
Loyalty to the Decemvirate above All
Members of this faction are the most dedicated members
of the Pathfinder Society, embodying the key tenets of
the organization above all else. Focused on exploring
ruins as well as securing artifacts from those who don’t
appreciate them, these Pathfinders have an insatiable
sense of curiosity. Grand Lodge Pathfinders make
excellent teammates for larger expeditions, and have
filled the tomes of the Pathfinder Chronicles since the
earliest volumes. They often take inspiration from the
exploits of the early Pathfinder Durvin Gest, aspiring to
become as famous as that legendary adventurer.
Tacitus employees tactics known as “battlefield control,” seeking to use his powers as support and to deceive or control the enemy on the battlefield.
He has traveled far and abroad and is standoffish and aloof most of the time. He genuinely cares for his companions but doesn’t show it much. He is a natural leader.
Tacitus has completed the following scenarios, including the deadly Bonekeep adventures and the Siege of the Diamond City.
